Last NASDU Magazine

You may or may not know that the next issue of the NASDU quarterly magazine will be the last of the current glossy format after over 13 years and 52 issues.

The NASDU Management Committee debated long and hard over dropping the magazine in favour of a social media presence and I suppose the posting which we put on our Facebook page on the 8th January which has now had over 7000 hits is evidence of the power of social media!

The editorial closing date is 31st January 2018 and if there is anyone who would like to contribute to this final issue then can we ask you forward your editorial and/or pictures to Head Office no later than Friday 26th January 2018.

We look forwarding to hearing from you shortly.

Once again NASDU Head Office has been notified that Mr Gavin Hepworth has been portraying himself as a NASDU Approved Trainer, conning handlers in departing with many thousands of pounds for training whilst offering NASDU/HABC qualifications.

NASDU can categorically state Mr Hepworth is not and has never been a NASDU Approved Instructor/Trainer.

What Mr Hepworth is doing is fraud and should be reported direct to the local Police or Trading Standards on 03454 04 05 06.

Any person (Member or not) with concerns regarding previous dealings with Mr Hepworth or who has any evidence of his malpractice should contact NASDU Head Office. Please help us to stamp out this type of malpractice within our industry and pass the word on to your friends and colleagues.

Just to remind Individual Members that Individual Membership is due for renewal for the period 1st February 2018 to 31st January 2019, renewal Forms are on there way.
